Six Alaska artists create 360-degree totem pole

by The 100 Companies

The Sealaska Heritage Institute unveiled the Sealaska Cultural Values Totem Pole, a 360-degree totem pole representing and honoring Alaska’s Haida, Lingít and Tsimshian Native tribes.

Haida artist TJ Young led the project with help from his brother Joe Young, apprentices Andrea Cook and Greg Frisby, and Tsimshian artist David Boxley and Lingít artist Robert Mills. It will be installed in SHI’s new Arts Campus.

The campus is positioned to make Juneau the Northwest Coast arts capital of the world. It will house space for artists to create, offering classrooms and performance areas, markets, an art library, artists-in-residence, faculty and gatherings.
